Q&A: Should Obama use this crisis to promote green energy initiatives?

Question by Andrew: Should Obama use this crisis to promote green energy initiatives?
If he wants to make the Democrats the party of new forms of energy…cleaner and greener energy, and the Republicans the party of big oil and BP…he would crush them on this issue with the general public. Will he use this to pass green energy reform in the next year? Or will he back off because he fears a fundraising backlash from big oil (just like how he backed off significant health care reform because he was scared of the big insurance companies and their money).

Best answer:

    he doesn’t care about green energy

    If he did care

    he wouldn’t be wasting tax payer money on subsidizing failed Ethanol

  2. This should serve as a clear example of the need for new energy sources. If we weren’t reliant on oil, then we wouldn’t have destroyed the ecology of the gulf.

  3. BHO does not want to tell the people it will cost double to be green before November.

  4. “Don’t let a crisis go to waste.”

    -Rham Emmanuel (White House Chief of Staff)

  5. Our environmentally conscious President spent the last 5 weeks dithering while the Gulf Coast is permanently fouled with oil.

    Thank goodness he is protecting us from the CO2 I exhale that the EPA declared is pollution

    Republicans aren’t “the party of big oil and BP.” We also see the need to reach out to different forms of energy. We support oil companies and new drilling because that is our primary energy source right now. We can also research new and alternative energy sources, but why should we crush the main source of energy we have right now?

    President Obama will probably back off for right now, but if he actually cares about “cleaner and greener energy,” then sometime in the near future he will do something about it.
